  1. Hi, Been trying to replicate your file sizes of if I am reading it correctly are 1-15Gb and cannot get anywhere near this - so firstly how do you know what size the file is if it keeps crashing as it works out at an average of around a 100Mb per layer. What file format are you exporting too? As a workaround have try saving either as Save or save as which will create an .afphoto file. Then close down affinity photo. Then restart affinity photo and open up the .afphoto file you created and see if you can export that one to what ever format you are exporting in. I use Windows 10 12gb ram Itel Zenon W3565 Quad processors
  2. Hi, When you use NIK plugins in Photoshop you get a button at the button names 'Brushes' but in Affinity you do not. Apart from this all the NIK plugins work with no noticeable problems on my Windows 10 Desktop and that includes the Beta versions. Does Affinity have any plans to allow the 'Brushes' Button to appear or is this a Dx0 problem? Any thought most welcome
  3. I used to be an IT manager in both military and civilian environments in the days of NT4 and we used to experience 'Blue Screens of death' which I suppose is the same as you are experiencing with Windows 8. I found out that one of the causes of this was memory - what was happening is that overtime the computer writes processes to the memory and then when its done with them allows that memory to be used for another application but in the cases that I came across when working for a software development company was that the application was not releasing the memory to be used again so eventually it would run out of memory and give the 'Blue Screen of Death'. This could be what is happening to you as its taking over an hour to crash and it crashes when looking for a relative small amount of memory. As you have tried most other things could this be the cause of your problem?
